're making sure that san franciscans not only go to work, but they are part of and engaged with us in all of these developments. and that, to me, is refreshing and new, because that keeps us going when our own folks, people who live around the neighborhoods and people engaged in these developments help us do and get to the goal. in commercial real estate, the city experienced the strongest absorption rates since 1988 last year. this year we're looking to best ourselves with 780,000 square feet of positive absorption. don't let me tell you what the data is, because i think you can see it, if you drive around and see all of the different construction cranes. well, actually, if you try to drive around. [ laughter ] because i know there is a little frustration, but hopefully when you are stalled in there and seeing these cranes and all of the construction and orange and yellow, you will know it's really worth it for the city to get better and stronger. we are in a construction boom and i just want to thank all of the construction companies here today. ones that do both interior and exterior

time to be completed. that will tell us with certainty what transpired, but our current best assessment based on the information that we have at present is that in fact, what this began as was a spontaneous, not a premeditated response to what had transpired in cairo. in cairo, as you know, a few hours earlier, there was a violent protest that was undertaken in reaction to this very offensive video that was disseminated. >> the spontaneous, not premeditated is the important part. that was four days after raw intelligence was available contradicting that. three days after the intelligence community may have apprised both lawmakers and the white house that such intelligence, preliminary though it may have been, in fact existed. so why then did susan rice say that? an intelligence official tells us she was working off a set of cia talking points. several senior administration officials tell us ambassador rice's use of the word spontaneous came directly from an assessment coming from congress and was not edited by the white house. but keeping them honest the white house had been in frequent
